As far as I can tell, due to Microsoft finally getting around to blocking SecuROM in modern Windows releases (hooray, sorta), you need to no-CD crack Zero Hour retail (not Origin!) to make it run these days.


Per this old thread: https://forums.revor...ferent-version/ GenTool/CNCOnline doesn't support cracked versions, and indeed in Online play with a friend we get that "different versions" symptom even though we have identical setups.


It does work in LAN play with GenTool to fix the speed issues, which I guess is skipping the check. Is there any way to disable that for Internet games? I am fully aware this isn't going to allow playing in ladders/stats/leaderboards/with the rest of the community, but that's not the problem I'm trying to solve, just getting trying to get a game with said one friend who is now several thousand miles away.

You are probably using a crack that forces version mismatch. If you use a different crack, it should work.

Try these:

Gain access to CNC Online servers by using GenTool for Generals and Zero Hour.



"GenTool provides enhanced game controls and optimizations to maximize your online gaming experience. Additionally it comes with three anti cheat solutions for Generals and Zero Hour. The program is easy to install and is fully functional with C&C Generals 1.8, C&C Generals Zero Hour 1.04, Generals Deluxe Edition, The First Decade and The Ultimate Collection."
